One of the better beers I’ve had from Church. Nice Saaz profile coming through, good earthy spice. Fits the bohemian pilsner style well.

Draft at the brewpub as "Saaz Monster." Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts with lemony, spicy hops. The taste is big lemon hops, mild caramel malts. Medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of pale bready malts and a touch of bitter hops. Flavor is more floral with hop bitterness and pale malts. More pilsener than hoppy pilsner but it’s drinkable.

On tap at Saaz Monster at 6%, 35 IBU. Filtered orange-copper color. Foamy white head. Rather straightforward classic lager, nice Saaz feel but nothing "monstrous". Not really on par with a good German example. A touch grainy. OK.

Draft at the brew pub over the summer. Pours light golden with thin white head and lacing. Slightly lemon nose. Taste of straw with faint lemon. Hoppy, light and refreshing.

On tap at Twisted as Saaz Monster. Very light noble hop aroma and a hint of spice. Dull medium golden-amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. starts with light pilsener malt sweetness. Medium noble hop bitterness, beany. Clean finish, not quite crisp. Decent pils.

Was not terribly impressed... Saaz character was there, but the pilsner malts and bitterness wasn't as prevalent as should be expected...

Sold to me as "Saaz Monster" on tap. Sampler from the mixed flight of currently running brews. Overall this appeared and tasted to be weak. Definitely compromised on ingredients and body and taste. Why do so many brewpubs continue to cheat their customers with this hogwash?
